While surfing, I ran into a "micro-ISV support blog",
dedicated to the very small developer.  It happened to
profile a guy who wrote a little notetaking application in Delphi
years back just to learn the language, and who was surprised
to find he could make a living selling it.  It's called "The Journal",

It seems to install and run rather well under wine-0.9.4
except for some richtext glitches, a redraw problem
(just flip around between the main mode tabs of the
app and watch the legend on the right below the toolbar -
it gets pretty corrupt), and a bit of sluggishness.
Plus, like many other apps I've tested lately, it constantly spews
fixme:win:LockWindowUpdate (0x2003e), partial stub!
fixme:win:LockWindowUpdate ((nil)), partial stub!

I wrote up the redraw problem as
That's the only problem bad enough to kill a demo
of the app so far.
